The ICNS exists to focus the extraordinary range of work relating to narratives and narrative theory at York. It brings together researchers in the humanities, sciences and social sciences, and it bridges the full historical range of period studies within the humanities.

We approach collaborative and interdisciplinary research as dialogue rather than synthesis, so that the exchange of ideas feeds back into the specific research fields of the participants. Our networks extend a long way beyond the York academic community; if you are interested in being involved, do get in touch.
